A brief note to the effect that this update log is no longer canonical;
I don't find it necessarily worthwhile anymore to note every site change.

site move I reactivated the bibliographical database and got it working
with the new MySQL server, reworked the bulletin boards and other CGI
to work on the new server, modified the main bulletin board to display
25 messages at a time, did all the DNS/Domain changes, etc, etc.

last we chatted in this little space. I'm sure you can find them. I've
